A great episode that left me scratching my head over the resolution that feels like it was put in for shock value.
Roger's such a great character that he can be put in just about any situation and hilarity will ensue. Police training is no different and Roger blowing up the kitchen in the background to coincide with an imaginary montage is easily the funniest thing I've seen in weeks. The subsequent training session with Stan was great stuff. I also learned that crooked cops are no match for Roger's DEADLY ELBOWDROP OF HEAD EXPLODEYNESS!!! Jeezum Crow, did I not see that one coming and the slow-motion replays were...kinda gross and unnecessary. That scene seems like more of a hiccup, as opposed to FG and Cleveland where gross-out humor's becoming the norm.
It also looks like they're going with a full-on prolonged arc between Reginald the Koala and Haley. Thought the last episode would have been enough of a blowoff, but I'm curious to see where this goes. I don't think, though, that they can possibly touch any ground they haven't already treaded with this storyline.
Another winner from AD. Glad to have it back in its normal slot.
Dear American Dad...Please forgive me for being OK with the network's decision to take you off the air for what turned out to be a horrible, horrible show. I hope you can understand my decision, because Tyler Labine is a very funny man, and I was very much looking forward to Sons of Tucson. But the show, oh Lord, that show was just so *bad*, and it wasn't Tyler's fault. Please don't take it out on him. Anyway, I'm sorry and I'm very happy that you're back.
I thought it was just ok. I did enjoy "You've got the touch." montage. It felt more like a regular cop episode with a few laughs. I hated the Haley and Reginald stuff. People bitching about Brian and Stewie have nothing to complain if they go through with this. At least with those two, they have established Stewie/Brian for years if they decide to put them together. If they play Haley/Reginald as a one time deal, I'll be ok with if not then its a waste of time since neither is that interesting of a character. The elbow drop of doom was good though and it was one of the few episodes I enjoyed Roger.
Probably the weakest episode of the season, but still funny. Steve and Claus both got some good lines in their brief appearances, and I like Roger taking all the "manly" costumes out of his wardrobe. I know it's been said before, but this show has done so, so much to improve from the pilot that it's almost impossible to believe it's the same show.
A taut, well-made political thriller by George Clooney where we learn just how much it takes to wipe the perpetual, know it all smile from Ryan Gosling's face. Review with SPOILERS at Back of the Head (backofthehead.com)
